May's Classes

May is a ceramics enthusiast! She hasn't seen a treatment she hasn't tried. May began practicing ceramics 8 years ago and has learned from the very best educators. She studied in Grimsby England from a world renowned bird pie ceramist, Donna Peterson at Peterson Pottery. She has also attended classes stateside in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and several places in Georgia, including our very own Spruill Center for the Arts.
May emphasizes exploration and trusting our individual inner creativity to lead us to our own unique artful expression. May enjoys teaching new/beginning students the fundamentals of throwing and how to become comfortable with clay. She also enjoys sharing her unique expression in clay with advanced students demonstrating a variety of treatments and techniques to embellish thrown pieces using various tools and skills. To name a few techniques: slip trailing, sprig molds, impressions, stencils, silk screens, decals, tissue paper transfers, kintsugi, wheel assist forms and molds, carving (both molds and Potts) surface texture molds, Trompe l'oeil, colored clay, colored slips, China paints, lusters, etc…
May has created a number of her own favorite tools as well as developed a number of her own unique treatments. If you are new and looking for an instructor or advanced and looking for a new way to embellish your Potts try May's class.
